Wedding Monogram Etiquette

Monograms have become increasingly popular with weddings and are staples in parts of the world such as the Southern US. If you choose to have a monogram on your stationery, napkins, dance floor, or anywhere else you need to consider a few things so you don’t breach etiquette.

First, if you’re having a duo-gram (a monogram with the initials of the couple’s first name and the first letter of the groom’s last name) this should only be seen after the ceremony. You are not Mr. and Mrs. xxx until after the ceremony so you should save showing off your new last name until after the celebration.

Second, if you want to have a monogram for your printed materials in advance of the ceremony or during the ceremony (invitations, order of service, etc), then use the first initials of the couple’s first name.
